I beg to ask the Prime Minister if he will state whether people living in Great Britain are, by going abroad to sell State secrets or plans to a foreign Power, exempted from prosecution except in the case of those wearing His Majesty's uniform.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. ASQUITH,) Fifeshire, E.
I regret that I do not understand the meaning of this Question. The law on the subject is fully and clearly set out in the Official Secrets Act.
asked was it not clear that people could not be prosecuted for the offence if they went out of the country to sell State secrets?
